Teeth Whitening Las Vegas
Getting whiter teeth doesn’t mean you’re strictly set on making an appointment with the dentist. In fact, you can purchase toothpaste, whitening gels, rinses, trays, and strips over the counter that work rather well. However, if it’s effectiveness you’re after, you’ll want to speak with your dentist. Having Dr. Balle or Dr. Guild apply their professional level teeth whitening in Las Vegas is the best way to ensure you’re getting the quickest and safest results.
If you choose at-home bleach trays or some other means of teeth whitening, there are several things you’re missing out on:
- Bleaching agent strength: Teeth whitening kits you buy at the store only have a fraction of the strength you’ll get from the dentist. Typically, they’re only 10% carbamide peroxide, which is about 25-30% less than dentist-provided bleaching agents.
- Properly fitted mouth trays: When you go to the dentist to have your teeth whitened, you’ll be specially fitted for a mouth tray. The ones you’ll get over the counter won’t be fitted for your mouth and, therefore, won’t work as effectively as you’d like—and they can be rather uncomfortable.
- Protective measures: Bleaching agents are pretty harmless when you use them properly. However, any amount of bleaching agent you apply to your teeth can damage or hurt your teeth and gums without that added layer of protection. In our office, your dentist will apply protective gel and do any extra work that needs to be done to protect your teeth and gums.
- Treatment plan: By visiting Dr. Balle or Dr. Guild, you can get the most effective plan to whiten your teeth. At home, you won’t be able to gauge the power and effectiveness of the bleach like you would at the dentist, so those yellow teeth just might stay yellow a little longer.
Teeth whitening trays
The best solution for teeth whitening involves custom-made trays. These trays resemble mouth guards. Dr. Balle or Dr. Guild will measure, mold, and fit them. They’re the best way to deliver teeth whitening bleaching agents to your teeth.
Your dentist will recommend how long and how often to wear the bleaching trays. It could vary greatly, depending on the strength of the peroxide bleaching agent. It may also depend on the severity of the tooth discoloration. Once you have everything you’ll need, you can even do it from home.
